A more nuanced perspective on cognition, behavior, personality, and pathology. 

It is explained that mental activity is not possible without concepts/memory structures that exist in the brain and result from perceptual learning. Core mental activities including thinking, reasoning, and judgment are described as components of self-regulation and in terms of interacting neural systems.

This framework also leads to a more specific and less stigmatizing system for classifying and diagnosing mental illnesses.

This concise volume: 

  • Recasts mental processes as neuro-mental processes.
  • Provides empirical evidence for the neural basis for judgments.
  • Addresses ongoing mind/brain questions such as whether thinking is unconscious.

Key Insights into Basic of Mental Activity will interest scientists doing research in psychology, psychiatry, psychotherapy, human biology/anthropology, linguistics, and neuroscience. Professors, lecturers, and instructors will find it important as a class text in these fields. And the book’s clinical implications make it useful to practitioners of psychology, psychiatry, and psychotherapy.
